Facility Status at Thousand Islands National Park

Like many parts of the St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, significant flooding impacted the park in 2017 and many of the park’s docks were damaged beyond repair. The park is undertaking a multi-year process of building new docks so that boaters can continue to discover and enjoy the natural beauty of the islands.        

Significant recapitalization efforts will continue throughout 2019, with construction at McDonald, Camelot and Mulcaster Islands. This work is influenced by factors such as weather conditions, in water work restrictions to protect spawning fish and nesting turtles, and availability of contractors. 

We encourage boaters to plan their visit by reviewing updates to the status of docks at our maps page.
